If you think you can handle it, if you think you're hard enough, this is a four-day, 36-band heavy-music gangbang to satisfy the hard and heavy junkie in all of us. It's the cream of Rochester heavy rock with sets performed by bands like Vanity Strikes, Burial Harbor, Aggressive Betty, Ghostfeeder, Hate Machine, The Dead Catholics, and Keaton, to list a few of the loud and proud and angry in this town. Be warned the volume may stunt your growth.
